It's everywhere and in unexpected places. There's no doubt digital is a booming industry in Nova Scotia, but collaboration is key if we wish to maintain the momentum. It's hoped that Here We Code, a Dalhousie University campaign, will be the catalyst to collaboration. Here We Code is a new chapter for digital in the province. Its goal is to bring together industry, schools, businesses, governments and Nova Scotians to build on the success the sector has seen thus far and make sure it remains prosperous into the future.In this episode of All Hands on Tech, we sit down with Becca Rawcliffe, the director of engagement and communications with Dalhousie's Faculty of Computer Science, to learn more.Learn more about Here We Code at https://www.herewecode.ca/Visit Digital Nova Scotia: https://digitalnovascotia.com/Music © Bensound.com

It's been a long-held belief that part of the reason patients can't access a family doctor is because new, younger doctors want to work less than their older counterparts. A new study out of Dalhousie University challenges that idea. We spoke with one of the co-authors, Ruth Lavergne, who is an associate professor in Dalhousie's Department of Family Medicine and a Canada Research Chair in Primary Care.

The idea wasn't to bust myths. But it seems they have. Teams of researchers across the country wanted to see if family physicians from different generations practise medicine differently. And Dr. Ruth Lavergne says she was surprised to find out the simple answer is there's very little difference. She is an associate professor in Dalhousie's Department of Family Medicine and a Canada Research Chair in Primary Care. As co-author of this study, they found there are similar issues affecting primary care across Canada and the practice followed a pattern. The number of visits peaked for physicians with 27 to 29 years of practice, whereas doctors earlier in practice or at the end of their careers had fewer patient visits. We also discuss fee-for-service, virtual and collaborative care as ways to address the challenges to accessing primary care. The study was published this week in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

Sylvain and I are back on the mic together after seeing each other and being together at the Coffee Association of Canada's great conference in Toronto last week.I'm back from a whirlwind trip to NYC and have to say I had some super exciting dining experiences….first, I visited the new RH Guest House for breakfast. Then I experienced the new Starbucks concept store at the foot of the Empire State Building and my favourite restaurant Balthazar for an amazing Nova Scotia lobster pasta.And coming out of the Coffee Association conference, we've already published a special bonus episode with Benjamin Tal, Deputy Chief Economist, CIBC, talking about the big picture economic forecast and the impact on the food industry….In this episode, recorded live in person, our insightful interview with Kate Burnett, President at Bridgehead Coffee.Breaking news…Sylvain might be back on Galen Westin's Christmas Card list! A super interesting new report from the Agri-Food Analytics lab broke through the Twitter clutter and revealed some startling stats about what Canadians heard, how they shop and whom they blame for high food prices.Next, we discuss Dairy Farmers of Canada's investment in the Toronto Maple Leafs,  impressions on COP27, and the FDA's stunning approval of lab-grown chicken! We finish with a quick chat about favourite food movies and The Menu. About KateKate Burnett is the Chief Operations Officer of Bridgehead. She has been with the organization since 2017, after moving back to Ottawa with her family. Kate actively pursued a role with Bridgehead based on its commitment to people (farmers, suppliers, customers and staff), the local community and the environment. The idea of having a Bridgehead flat white every morning just pushed her over the edge.Prior to Bridgehead, Kate worked for Me to We, an innovative social enterprise based in Toronto focused on empowering people to change the world. She held multiple roles over her seven years there, including the Director of Consumer Engagement (building the retail side of the enterprise), Director of Business Development (working with partners to support initiatives and products with impact) and eventually as the Deputy Chief Operating Director (joining the Executive team to help lead and manage the growing enterprise).Kate completed an honors undergraduate degree from the University of Western Ontario with a double major in English and Psychology. She later completed an MBA from the University of Victoria with a focus on service management (marketing, operations and customer service). She received multiple scholarships including the Canada's CEO of the Year – Futures Fund Scholarship and was the President of the Student Council.Before Me to We, Kate was the Associate Director of Camp Kandalore, a traditional summer camp with a focus on leadership and canoe tripping. Prior to this, she spent sixteen summers attending and then working at Camp Tawingo, which nurtured her passion for making a difference. Kate has travelled to over thirty countries and has been lucky enough to have been able to volunteer in South Africa at a camp for children affected by HIV/AIDS as well as in Rwanda with youth affected by the genocide.She believes that using innovative business practices to make a positive impact is the most efficient and effective way to change the world. ​About UsDr. Sylvain Charlebois is a Professor in food distribution and policy in the Faculties of Management and Agriculture at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

That ended up becoming a YouTube Channel and led them to their new book published by Fernwood. "Frequently Asked White Questions" is the ten most common questions they took and it was a way to offer education without condition. And they could do it in a way that was not designed to embarrass or inflame and to use humour to also foster understanding and pull people into anti-racist behaviour.
